Judo promotes 8 values including courage, respect, modesty, friendship, honor, honesty, self-control, and courtesy. These values promoted within the art center around consideration for others and self-examination to determine whether you outwardly uphold those values. Practitioners of Judo become self-aware and more mindful of the decisions they make every day.
Judo training is excellent for developing grit. During training, your body will increase in toughness due to being on the receiving end of throws. Other physical benefits found in training are balance, coordination, and overall strength.
Judo, like other martial arts, greatly impacts the metacognition of its participants. In fact, many scientific journals have studied the potential impact that Judo could have on society. Scientists and practitioners have agreed that judo training can improve mental skills such as quick decision-making, staying calm during duress, maintaining caution, reasoning, acute observation, imagination, memory, and organization.
